At last a bad spell came on which seemed to be final, and my suffering was intense. The doctor treated me for three months straight. I was put on a diet and deprived of all my favorite dishes.

I was well-nigh starved, and was in misery. I was in complete darkness, and knew that I must have light soon or something would happen.
